Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

When is the shininess of Kyogre/Groudon/Rayquaza's determined?

1 vote

I used an emulator and saved it while kyogre was approaching me. I didn't know if it's shininess was determined before it approached me or when the battle started. Thank you :з

Shininess is decided when you start the battle.

It is most likely determined right as you enter the battle however it could be that if you see its sprite as a shiny but I'm not entirely sure.

P.S. you shouldn't ask emulator questions.

I only said that it was an emulator because you can't save at that point on GBA
